GOP Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) has launched a PAC to take control of the Republican party away from Trump.
According to Fox News:
The Air Force veteran and current lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard who served two tours of duty in the Iraq war launched a new political action committee to take aim against Republicans who continue to embrace and Trump.
Pointing to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by right-wing extremists and other Trump supporters to unsuccessfully disrupt congressional certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory over Trump, the congressman said Sunday in a video announcing his new “Country First” PAC that “this is no time for silence. Not after the last month. Not after the last few years. Someone needs to tell the truth.”
Today, @RepKinzinger ignited a movement to restore the GOP by putting principles first. It’s time to call out the lies and leave the vitriol behind. Now, we must put the country first for a better future.

Kinzinger, who represents a district in the central and eastern parts of northern Illinois, argues, “The Republican Party has lost its way. If we are to lead again, we need to muster the courage to remember who we are. We need to remember what we believe and why we believe it. Looking in the mirror can be hard, but the time has come to choose what kind of party we will be and what kind of future we’ll fight to bring about.”
Kinzinger was elected during the initial Tea Party wave in 2010 and has publically stated that the party today is not the one he joined back then.
